You can scan these images into a computer and then bring them into your video editing program. When scanning here are some basics:

- File organization is key. Name files clearly and keep them in a folder named Stills.

Using a Computer to Create Images
If you are going to create images in your computer, we suggest that you use Adobe Photoshop, but any imaging software will work.
